After a hugely successful first edition in 2020, free sculpture exhibition Les Sculptures Refusées is returning to North Head Manly's Q Station. Running from Wednesday, October 20–Thursday, January 27, this year's edition of the exhibition will display new works by artists that missed out on major exhibitions like Sculpture by the Sea.

Attendees can wander through the idyllic site, stumbling upon 24 different sculptures set to the Q Station's vast grounds and the backdrop of Sydney Harbour. On display are artworks from an array of acclaimed and prolific local artists including Akira Kamada, Orest Keywan, Rosanna Goslett-King, Anna Dudek and Sarah FitzGerald.

Grab a snack or coffee from one of the Q Station's cafes to enjoy while you mosey through the exhibition, or head to the G&Tea House after making your way around the site to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.

Les Sculptures Refusées continues the legacy of the historic French art exhibition Salon des Refusés which exhibited rejected artists and paintings in the 19th century. "The show has certainly captured the spirit and energy of the time-honoured Refusés tradition," Co-Founders Tania McMurtry and Simon Hodgson said. "Les Sculptures Refusées received a groundswell of support with its inaugural show and we are extremely excited to again be increasing opportunities for artists to show their work in what has been a difficult year for the arts."
